Deathrace 2021

Recommended Posts

It's fast, it's furious it's f***in' good fun. Teams of 20 topplers posted on this thread or PM'd to MPFC will be collected into a masterlist to provide a carnival of carnage, the counting of which goes live in the first second of 2021. Points aplenty pour into the scoreboard until someone snags the stupendous total of 2021, at which point the event that used to be the fastest deadpool in common useage (until MPFC started something faster!) slams on the brakes and the lucky winner is duly given metaphorical back-slaps and allowed to claim a prize worth about a tenner (though tradition thus far dictates this turns into a charitable donation)*. Closing date for entries is midnight on 30 December 2020.

This'll be the List of the Lost, then - ably presided over by a champion loser of the plot who managed to fit this gig into her busy (NOT!) 2021 schedule:

Deathrace 2021 - Those Rules in Full:


1 - The object of the Deathrace is to be the first contestant to reach 2021 points.

2 - To enter the Deathrace a contestant must have:

i: a team of twenty topplers and a minimum of two subs ("topplers" must be at least 18 years old on 1 Jan 2021; but are otherwise unrestricted).
ii: Deathlist membership (i.e. be at least a pointless ranter and at most a dedicated Cumbrian corpse hound, or summat)

2a: A player may enter as many team members facing execution as s/he wants but said picks will only count for deathrace points if they die by means other than state execution - murder, suicide, ill health etc.

3 - Entries close promptly at midnight on 30 December and entry can be made either by sending a team of twenty to MPFC via PM hereabouts and/or by posting a team of twenty on the Deathrace 2021 thread.

3a: Once a team has entered in the manner described above the line-up can’t be changed for any other reason than the death of a team member before the start of the competition. In the event of a team being short of members because of more deaths than available subs MPFC will negotiate last minute changes with the team manager.

4 - Players score points every time a team member dies and accrues an obit (see point 9 below) and the score for each death is calculated as one point for each complete calendar day remaining in 2021 after the death of the team member; so a death on 1 January earns 364 pts, a death on 2 January earns 363 pts etc.

5 - Each team must nominate one member as a joker and the joker scores double points on death. Any team submitted without a clearly nominated joker will be allotted said joker on the basis of the name at the top of the team sheet being so designated.

6 - The winner is the first player to reach or exceed 2021 pts.

7 - In the event that a death or deaths on a specific day push more than one player beyond a winning score the player with the highest overall score will be deemed to be the winner.

8 - In the event that two or more players tie for victory a Deathrace play off will ensue with all potential winners continuing to compete until such time as one potential winner scores more points than any other potential winner (such points continuing to be accrued as per the scoring system described in point 4 above).

9 - An "obit" in the context of the Deathrace is any news report in English from a reliable source. Such sources include - but are not limited to - UK national press, UK national broadcast organisations, foreign press and broadcast organisations with an English language thread to their communication, trade press in English, local news organisations reporting in English and coverage in specialist online sites, such as those monitoring the well-being of super-centenarians. Where dispute arises over the qualifying nature of a news source for obit purposes MPFC's decision is final. But he wants fast and furious competition and is generally very amenable to low hanging dead pool fruit of all varieties.

10 - To qualify for entry purposes team members must be alive at 00-01 hrs on 1 January 2021 or qualify for the Raymond Hewlitt Memorial Exemption (RHME) (see point 11).

11 - In honour of everybody's favourite Maddie-implicated paedo scum a candidate widely believed to be alive on 1 January and subsequently proven to have died previously will be awarded 365 points in the event that a Deathrace qualifying obit subsequently appears for said candidate. In the event that a Deathrace qualifying obit for the candidate is subsequently proven to have existed prior to commencement of the Deathrace all points will be voided. RHME points are only available during competition and in the event that a winner has been declared before discovery of a qualifyiing RHME candidate no revision of the final result will occur. Similarly, if some lucky candidate is awarded RHME points and these points are still in play at the time a winner is declared the points will not subsequently be voided and may - therefore - count towards a championship. All disputes relating to RHME will be resolved by the astute judgement of MPFC and there is no appeals procedure (though all sides of opionion are warmly invited to liven up the Deathrace thread by venting their fury).

 

11a - Similarly to pt 11 above, if an obited death occurs during play of the Deathrace and is missed despite MPFC's best efforts to stay in touch and/or the spirited efforts of Deathrace participants and said death is missed in totting up points, after which a winner is declared, then this death will not count for competition purposes. The same is true in the case of a known death gathering a late obit and therefore allowing some other competitor to be declared a winner. All disputes relating to rule 11a will be resolved by the astute judgement of MPFC and there is no appeals procedure (though all sides of opionion are warmly invited to liven up the Deathrace thread by venting their fury).

 

12 - In the event that Deathlist editing options or other online trickery is discovered to have been employed in the editing of teams, those duly fingered for such cheating will be removed from the Deathrace and banned for life from subsequent entry into Deathraces.

13 - The prize will be awarded as follows:

i: Should the winner agree to attend a DLCon with MPFC a double measure of alcholic drinks (pints, wine or spirits) will be supplied by MPFC along with much hearty congratulations and back-slapping.

ii: A carefully chosen and appropriate prize will be posted to the winner (such as the DVD copy of the original Deathrace movie supplied to the 2009 champion). iii: MPFC will make a charitable donation to a cause of the winner's choice (as has been the case with all but one winnings of the Deathrace). This course of action is highly encouraged and is known to show dead poolers as something other than the sicko scum many ranters believe us to be.


AND FINALLY...

A masterlist of entries will be posted after the closing date.

MPFC will undertake to update the scoreboard at least once every seven days.

On completion of Deathrace activities the thread will get lively for a short while as losing contestants and spectators offer well-deserved congratulations to the skillful and highly talented new champion, after which time it is expected that the cooling corpse of the thread will be allowed to gently sink into oblivion.

 

 

 In summary: 

 

It's fast, it's furious it's f***in' good fun. Teams of 20 topplers posted on this thread or PM'd to MPFC will be collected into a masterlist to provide a carnival of carnage, the counting of which goes live in the first second of 2021. Points aplenty pour into the scoreboard until someone snags the stupendous total of 2021, at which point the event that used to be the fastest deadpool in common useage (until MPFC started something faster!) slams on the brakes and the lucky winner is duly given metaphorical back-slaps and allowed to claim a prize worth about a tenner (though tradition thus far dictates this turns into a charitable donation)*. Closing date for entries is midnight on 30 December 2020.

Michael Ball 

 

58 year old singer and generally entertaining sort who had a chart topper this year. Despite a distinct encroaching jowliness and a frame suggesting a certain fondness for a snack, Ball continues to canter through a conspicuously successful career with no major blips since his partner - former Ready Steady Go presenter Cathy McGowan - saved his life by dragging him from a house fire 20 years ago. So, move along - nowt by way of begging Deathrace points so see here, then!

Nice. 3 year itch on course for a hattrick of titles coming home to Glasgow? Don't hold your breath.

 

Never twigged untl now that Rad Guy was the first person to *retain* the Deathrace either. Belated congrates for if he ever returns to the forum.

Concur with the other advice you were given above - just PM me or post a list of 20 names and 2 subs on this thread - and read the rules carefully, old and infirm is lovely (no penalties - we just want 'em dead and we fucking hate lingerers), this is shit-or-get-off-the-pot dead pooling.

Deathrace Form Guide #5

 

 

shane-macgowan-6.jpg

 

 

Shane MacGowan

 

Has dates in his diary - 25 Dec = 63rd birthday, 1 Jan begins his duties as master of ceremonies on the Deathrace. There's a history of fairly public alcoholics - John Martyn, George Best - pegging out around this stage of life and MacGowan's history of hell raising and bar stool occupation suggests he's well in their league. How far he can outlive them is another question and there is a history of dead pool picking of the man that is only likely to snowball with every passing day. The point scoring on his death as far as the Deathrace is concerned begins one second into the New Year.
